A Liberty Township woman was attacked by up to 11 of her own dogs in her home early Monday morning.

The Jackson County sheriff's department says the 62 year old woman was rescued by her roommate after he heard the woman's screams.

The roommate drove the victim to Allegiance Hospital. She was later flown to the University of Michigan Hospital for treatment of the dog bites described as "extremely serious."

Investigators say the attack happened in the home the couple shared in the 7800 block of South Draper Road. She had originally said she was attacked by two unknown dogs while walking one of her dogs along the street.

Neither the victim nor her roommate have been identified. The dogs are in quarantine at Jackson County Animal Control.

    I am sorry that she got bit, I don't understand why she lied, except that she didn't want the officials to find out that she had to many dogs. Unless you are a Licenced Breeder you shouldn't have that many dogs. Two people can't care for and give the attention needed by that many dogs.

    That number of dogs is unnecessary. She needs to have only what she can easily control. They were not getting enough attention so they turned on her hoping to get attention.

    Sounds like a lesson learned for one of these animal hoarder types.

    At least they did not attack an innocent bystander. Who in their right mind would have 11 dogs anyway. To compound the issue, she lied about what happened. Hopefully the dogs can be adopted to a sensible home.

    Dogs are like kids, they love attention. There is no way that you can have more than two dogs and give it the attention that they need.
